I'm looking to upgrade my old AS Rock G41M-VS3 and Intel E5400 to a new pair. I use my pc mostly for gaming, I have a 550w Aywun PSU which should be able to handle any upgrade I get.
Thank you in advance for the help!

i suggest these motherboards MSI z77A-G43 for 100$ or msi-z77ma-G45 for 110$ or if you want something cheaper msi h61-p20 for 40$
and core i3 2120 for 130$ or i5-3550 for 200$
you didn't mention the budget

Your PSU is no good for GTX560. Aywun 550W is NOT a recognized brand.

CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 Sandy Bridge 3.1GHz - $190

Motherboard: ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 - $105
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-157-...

Total: $295
295 U.S. dollars = 287.58 Australian dollars

Just had a look on ebay, the i5-2400 seems to be about $180 but the ASRock Z68 is almost $200, is it just me or are motherboards a lot more expensive in Australia?
I will still most likely get this combo, thank you very much for the help! :D

It is Robbery. The board is way too much overpriced in ebay from what you are saying!

What do you mean not a recognized brand? It's been running fine for about half a year now... D:
